then 1/3 of my take-home pay) i get a phone call from the CSA. I wasn't in
at the time and had to call them back. I googled the number and it came back
as a number from the CMEC department. Brilliant i thought! They must be
reassessing me under the new rules! I rang them back. The person on the
phone then started damanding i pay £4000 arrears NOW, then started telling
me what they can do to me if i don't. This person could not be reasoned
with. I tried to explain i already had an agreement in place and was paying
off my arrears on top of my CS every month. The person wouldn't listen and
kept repeating back the same things, like a f'ing robot... "If you don't pay
this now we can do this to you then do that to you..." on and on in reply to
everything... At this point i'd had enough so i Fletcher'ed 'em right there
and then. (Send this in writing, and please never contact me on the phone
ever again, only in writing from now on) as i went to hang up, the person
said in a raised voice down the phone "YOU HAVE ONE WEEK TO REPLY OUR
LETT....(Click)" The letter arrived shortly after demanding i pay my £4000
arrears NOW. (The 4k was not through non-payment by the way, it was their
cockup in the 1st place)
I replied back offering them £40pm more on top of what i was paying towards
my arrears. (CC'd my MP with a copy of the letter and a covering letter)
Monday morning i get a reply. Ignoring everything said in the letter, and
informing me they are putting a DEO on my wages for £780pm.
So turns out, i get the CS assesment of old CS1 system (Very High) and the
enforcement policy of the new system (Very harsh). That's brilliant.
I'm tired of playing the nice guy all the time by giving in to their
demands. I've done this for 10 years now and i've had enough. On Monday i
quit my job. They can whistle for it now. I can make arrangements to get
money to my KIDS via alternative means when i'm set up self employed.
If they want to take my passport/driving licence away, publicly flog me,
send me to prison, nail me to a fucking wall then so be it. Bring it on.
Fuck them and their nasty discriminating child UN-friendly bastard
